STANFORD, KY – July 24, 2020
Lincoln County Schools is canceling K-Camp for the 2020-2021 school year. The event had been scheduled to be hosted in-person on August 5th and 6th. The decision to cancel is based off of correspondence from Interim Commissioner of Education Kevin Brown that was sent out to superintendents last night.
Commissioner Brown asked districts starting before August 14th to either consider starting with NTI or pushing their start date until after August 15th for in-person school. “Because of this recommendation from the Commissioner, we’ve decided it’s best to cancel K-Camp this year,” said Superintendent Michael Rowe.
Update on Starting School
Lincoln County Schools is currently scheduled to start school on August 26. The current plan is to offer students two different options: Option 1, in-person school and Option 2, Patriot Learning Academy.
The schools have been conducting a survey with the parents/guardians of students in the district. As of today, there have been 2,800 responses and 66% of the responses have been to return to in-person school on August 26th. “Based on the comments from the governor the past couple days, we fully understand that these plans may change. Our leadership team is constantly working on alternative plans. We will be discussing these with the Board soon at a Working Board Meeting,” explained Superintendent Rowe.
